As we grow older we need less food to do the normal duties. I suggest you find ways to avoid sugars, move onto low carbohydrate diet and keep only small meals 3-4 times a day. Especially at night. During the day he should try to do as much house work as possible, until he can start walking outside the house and if possible start exercising as guided by the regular cardiologist (heart doctor) you are consulting. Wish you all the best.

How long have you been jogging, if recently started, as you are a young growing man, I recommend you slowly increase your activities. You should take short rests until your heart beat settles and then start jogging again. If this continues beyond one month, you should get a cardiologist to check you.

Is dere a treatment for hole in a heart?
If you have the reports please forward them to me. If we can operate we will. I have been doing these operations for the last 15 years and we have good results. It all depends on what is the nature of the heart and lung condition the patient is suffering from .

If you had an angiogram done, and there is a single vessal disease with no collaterals, surgery will give good releif. If you have collaterals, both angioplasty and surgery will be good. But final decision should be taken based on the angiogram pictures.

Review after a couple of months will show his progress. A perfusion scan can tell us whether he will benefit from surgery. But we have to let him recover from the attack for some time first. Please share the reports of the cardiologist when you go for the next review.

400 ml of green tea is a lot. I do not know about the side effects of it but I suggest 200 ml twice a day is okay. If you do find any abnormal chest discomfort or heart beats please consult your physician also.

After stent, you should be on a good diet and exercise regime. Get your cholesterol checked frequently and echo done regularly. If your heart function is good, slowly increase your exercise as adviced by your cardiologist and physiotherapist. Practice to relax and be happy, your health will be good.

Hi, I can not run like you! good effort rohit! actually your heart is helping you by beating faster. I suggest you slow down when the heart rate goes above 120 per minute. Then start again. With daily practice you will acheive your aims. Dont take any medicines. It would be good if you get a stress echo done to see your heart function. It will help you understand how your heart is helping you run fast and also to make sure you have no problem that will prevent you from reaching your aims.

Diabetics have a higher chance of heart disease, but there are other reasons also. If your sugar is well under control you will be fine for a long time as long as there are no other risk factors.
